There are few musical groups that experience the kind of meteoric rise to popularity that One Direction has experienced. Few groups can claim to go from complete unknowns to international superstars as quickly as One Direction has managed. This feat was accomplished, in part, with the power of social media. After social media took over, One Direction tickets and albums suddenly became a must have for teens around the globe.
One Direction, known also as simply 1D, consists of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson. The five gents hail from England and Ireland and gained initial notoriety on the British television version of The X Factor in 2010. The group finished third on that season of the show and signed a deal with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records following the season.
From there, One Direction tickets were increasingly popular and difficult to purchase. The band's first three albums, Up All Night, Take Me Home, and Midnight Memories all broke numerous recording industry records in the UK and the United States. The popularity of One Direction tickets and the group's musical style has created a business empire worth roughly $50 million as of June 2012.
Following the massive success of the band's first album, Up All Night, One Direction set out on a concert tour in 2011 to promote the album and entertain the masses. The Up All Night Tour began with tour dates in England and Ireland, the intense demand for One Direction tickets led Modest! Management to extend the tour beyond January 2012 with dates added in Oceania and North America.
After the group's debut tour concluded at the end of June 2012, One Direction took time off to wrap up its second album (Take Me Home) and prepared to further promote the album upon its release. The group then set out in February 2013 on an extensive headlining tour, the Take Me Home Tour, to promote the second album.
This second tour was fueled by thousands of fans hungry for One Direction tickets, and that hunger seemed insatiable. All total, the group performed more than 100 events at venues through the United Kingdom, continental Europe, North America, and Oceania. AT the end, fans swarmed for One Direction tickets and propelled tour earnings to roughly $15 million (compared with just $5 million for the Up All Night Tour).
Today, One Direction tickets remain one of the most in-demand products in the entertainment industry. The group recently released its third album, Midnight Memories, on 25 November 2013. Continuing the group's massive success, the third album became the fastest-selling album in the 15-year history of Amazon UK and debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200. One Direction tickets are poised to be a hot item again as the band prepares for a third headlining tour in 2014.
The third tour, Where Are We, will start out unlike any other One Direction tour before. Rather than starting with events at home in the UK, the band will kick off the tour in Bogota, Columbia on 25 April 2014. Nearly 70 dates have been set for the band's third tour which is expected to stretch into early October 2014.
